This unit has 15 days worth of teaching, practicing, creating, working with, assessing, writing about, identifying, adding & subtracting with measurement! This unit is geared to 2nd grade. These are the plans I used in my 2nd grade class room that had GREAT results! Check out the standards below.
Each Day has class-wide engagement, questioning, a cooperative learning opportunity, and a practice for the given lesson! Each day scaffolds on the last, making understanding easier on the students.
Add your class rulers and measuring tape, and you're ready to go! Everything you need is here. All you do is print, cut (when needed), teach, and watch your kids soar!
Concept Taught Each Day:
Day 1 - Pre Assessment & Introduction
Day 2 - Non Standard Measurement
Day 3 - Needing Standard Measurements
Day 4 - Inches
Day 5 - Inches & Feet
Day 6 - Inches, Feet, Yards, & Miles
Day 7 - Centimeters, Meters, & Kilometers
Day 8 - Appropriate Tools & Estimation
Day 9 - Real World Project
Day 10-11 - Measuring with Two Units
Day 12-13 - World Problems
Day 14 - Perimeter
Day 15 - Post Assessment
Each of days you will explore the world of measurement to deepen students' understanding and mastery of concepts.
There are anchor charts, assessments (pre & post), practice pages, interactive notebook activities, class-wide collaborative learning for the class, group practice, projects, journaling, exit tickets, and review activities.
Each lesson has a Lesson, Questioning, Student Practice, and Closure.
This set is easily differentiated to accommodate each and every learner you teach!
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.1Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.2Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.3Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.4Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
